My theme for the A to Z Challenge: Desert Canyon Living
This is the Mojave Desert in
In spring, many parts of the high desert are covered in flowers.
The sky is vast in the desert. Once I saw a sunrise here, coloring the desert pink with a blue haze surrounding the mountains. It was one of the most beautiful moments in my life. After that, I was in love with this place.
Here gray rabbitbrush line the highway.
Some vegetation looks bad with dried out branches, barely alive.
Mountains border the Mojave.
Buttes and mesas rise up from the desert floor.
Highways cut through it.
Cities are built in it.
This is such a small slice of the Mojave Desert, but I think that even the 50 miles that I most often drive will give you a sense of how vast it is.
